- Yes, Syllables, not word counts.

We have to follow
Haiku's hard rules perfectly
Lets! Five, Seven, Five

I have to google to find out the syllable counts for the words to make it PERFECT. LOL

Never tried a haiku before - did I get it right, 5 - 7 - 5? It's not words right, its 'vowel sounds'?
Nice one !
Yes, you got it right!
Oh No, actually you have 8 syllables on 2nd line.
So, not right.

This is like math combined with poetry.

sorry Realm.
You are right.
I somehow counted 2 for source.
It is 5-7-5!
And it is beautiful Haiku.
